Aloha Travelers!

Home at last! Our last menu of the semester is our students' upscale take on Hawaiian Regional Cuisine. They have experienced many cuisines, as you have, and are ready to apply what they have learned to our own local products and iconic dishes.

We would like to thank you all for your patronage and involvement with our students' culinary education. There is much detail to learn and then place into practice. I know speed is lacking, but speed will come for them all as they find their employers "out there" and plug into kitchens where the menu is stable, and their cooking tasks are more repetitive.

Our class field trip to Oahu was a very eye opening look at many of the real realms and concerns of culinary. It was successful, and enjoyable for all.

Again thank you so much for your support. Have a wonderful summer.
